History of dhurrie weaving goes back to ancient times when the concept of weaving had taken shape. These items of floor furnishing are manufactured in the villages and towns both for the household consumption and selling in the local market. Chindi dhurrie weaving is mainly practiced in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh. The scrap cotton fabrics are picked up in bulk and shred into small strips on the hasia by women. These strips act as the wefts during weaving. Dyeing may sometimes be carried out of the cotton warp chindis. The horizontal ground looms, consisting of two wooden beams, to which the warp threads are attached, is used for making Chindi durries.

Over past few decades, the Chindi dhurries have been impressively influenced by the designers' intervention and a new range of concept in terms of sizes, colors, designs and forms have emerged.
